Please attribute the following to Philip Wheble, Senior Responsible Officer for the COVID-19 response, West Coast DHB:
So far, approximately 320 people have booked into this weekend’s Hokitika COVID-19 vaccination clinics and bookings remain steady.
West Coast DHB is holding two drive-through COVID-19 vaccination events in Hokitika this coming weekend (October 9 and 10) in the Westland Milk Products staff car park on the corner of Stafford and Livingstone Streets. Vaccinations are available to everyone aged 12 and older.
Bookings are now open and the DHB’s vaccination team have capacity to vaccinate over 1,500 people in Hokitika this coming weekend! While an appointment is recommended, it isn’t necessary so if you don’t get time to make a booking, you are welcome to just turn up between 10am – 4pm on either day.
West Coast Soft Serve will be on-site dishing out ice creams to everyone who has been vaccinated. All you need to do is show your COVID-19 vaccination sticker and if you have brought your children they can have a free ice cream too.
You can book online at www.BookMyVaccine.nz or by calling the National Booking team on 0800 28 29 26 (8am – 8pm, 7 days). Vaccinations are free.
Consider asking a friend who you’d like to get vaccinated with to come along with you. Better still invite your family/whānau members to join you too.
Remember, getting vaccinated is the best way to protect ourselves and our whānau.
